NeeD to SiGn Up NoW

Each year on December 21st...
yes I know you aren't even over Xmas yet ...
I need to open up registration for a Valentine's Day swap... to allow plenty of time.

Wouldn't it be wonderful to receive a "heart" with your initial on it from a blogging friend... new or old... in time for Valentines Day? 
For all the info you need just go HeRe...
Leave a comment on THIS POST ONLY if you want to play in 2015.


We had 61 swappers last year...
Can we beat it this year...???
Spread the word...

MakE-Up MiNi

Carin was a member of the 12 inch MiNi Club this year... but unfortunately was let down in her "summer" swap. Of course I couldn't let this happen...so I made a MiNi & mailed it off to her.
The mini has now been received so I can show it here. Of course Carin will have to wait until the northern hemisphere SuMMeR to display it, but at least she now has one.
I'm so HaPPy that you like my Aussie flavoured SuMMeR MiNi Carin. I even backed it with gorgeous White Cockatoo Fabric.
To visit Carin's blog in Sweden... just click here.

A WiNNeR &... A SunDaY

is a day of rest... except at this time of year... !!!
Before I go about the household chores AND some Christmas shopping I thought I'd show what I achieved on FNwF... and it's Not much really...
After dinner out with friends arriving home a little later than expected... I didn't get to finish off a xmas stocking I'd started earlier in the day...
 The one above makes number 4... and LasT
but I did manage to start knitting a new cotton shawl scarf.
See I told you it wasn't much!

I will be around later this evening to see what YOU got up to...
In the meantime the WiNNeR for November is...
Tracy G... from Sunny Corner Farm... here... Congrats Tracy...
